Powerful Perfomence in a low budget flick
31 January 2020 | by kunalsarkar-35401See all my reviews

Mithun Chakraborty is not only an originator of modern trend in Bollywood but also the Master of executing low budget flick.Prem Pratigyaa is one of the perfect example of it. Director of the film Bapu is a renowned film maker who usually deals with Social problems at down trodden belt. Previously he made two classics with Mithun i.e Hum Panch and Pyari Bahana.Story, Screen play, direction, sets of Prem Pratigyaa are simple which depicts a love story of a bad guy who later turns into a good responsible guy due to Love. The film is shoot in a limited sphare with limited expenditure.But the major grace point of the film are power packed Perfomence from the lead actors.It is one of the best performence of Madhuri in her early days and she is also nominated for best actress category in Filmfare award.Satis Koushik as Mithun's companion, Ranjit as villain, Vinod Mehra as Professor all justify the scripts. Mithun's expression , intense of acting are superb.In the scene where Mithun rescued Madhuri from Ranjit , his expression and dialogue delivery is completely different when Mithun is bleeded with Ranjit but not to take revenge against Ranjit due to his word to Madhuri.This proves versatileness of Mithun even in a low budget flick. In the song Sheesha ki umra, Mithun's put all his pain, grevances, frustration in his dance moves.Here dance is not a a mere dance ,it is a weapon to tell your feelings.A superstar gives his everything in a comparatively low budget movie and makes the movie hit and this is the speciality of Mithun. Music by Bappi Lahiri is good.Two songs specially Pyaar Kabhi Kam nahi karna and Sheesha ki umro Pyaar ki become Superhit. This film is certainly remembered as one of the best in both Mithun and Madhuri's career. Three 'M' i.e Mithun, Madhuri and Music make the film eight out of ten.
